The platform will see dance works dealing intimately with the human need for understanding one’s own nature and circumstances and for recognition.
Kaleidoscopic has been designed to bring audiences and artists closer together by using an unconventional performance space that removes the traditional hierarchy between performers and the audience and by inviting frank post-performance discussion between audience, choreographers and performers.
The first Kaleidoscopic platform will share the works of Lucy Wild and Marah Wilson, Lucia Schweigert, Konstantina Skalionta and Lizzie J Klotz.
The durational piece At its most silent hour is rooted in sacred ritual and provokes audiences to remember what is simple, beautiful and primal about being human and being alive. Can you be free? explores how our present-day choices can let the unchangeable facts of our past influence our future in different ways. Beauty-fool reflects on woman’s vulnerability towards body image concerns and her struggle to keep up with standards of beauty and perfection. And Too Much Noise, Not Enough Nuts is a chaotic investigation of human interaction and communication.
The artists involved are at the beginning of their careers and very excited to share their works with the audience. The Q&A will give an invaluable opportunity for exchange, which will inform the future practice of the artists and gives a deeper insight into their work to the audience.
